ABSTRACT
Treatment with softeners is the method normally used to obtain the desired touch or handle for textiles, which the end-customer will perceive as being pleasant and will appreciate. Therefore, it is common to associate a soft handle of the yarn with good smoothness. Softeners are thus often equated with optimal running properties of yarns, which have a positive effect on the knitting result. The present investigation refutes this assumption. It will be shown that the running properties of knitting yarns with softeners alone cannot be optimized to the degree necessary for low-friction and trouble-free production of knitted fabrics.
